New contracts signed

Another busy week. I've had four new books accepted for Liquid Silver Books, and I'm thrilled!!! Another full-length novel, which is both Historical and contemporary, as well as being a vampire tale full of sex, murder, and other things vampiric! This one is currently a tentative October release, and is called Descent Into Darkness. Then another contemporary action/thriller, The Domino Effect, and the second Devane Files title. I am so excited about all this. Especially the Devane books. Also, a collection of short stories called Passionate Kisses, which will include SIX titles, at least three of them never before released. This week also marked my debut with LSB, and for those of you who haven't heard, my Action/Adventure novel SIMPLY THE BEST is now available!!! It's HOT, and Max Richmonte is one sexy hero. One reader's already used the word "insatiable" to describe him, and I have to agree with her!! I hope you'll check it out at:
http://www.liquidsilverbooks.com/books/simplythebest.htm As always, thanks so much to everyone for your support. I can't tell you how much it means to me to hear from you, and to know that you're enjoying the books. Talk to you again soon!!!

Countdown to *NEW* releases and a couple of new "must reads" to suugest to you

Well, in a couple of weeks now I make my debut with Liquid Silver Books, with my first full-length erotic romance novel. I’m very excited about my comeback, even though I’ve only been away about five months — it feels like forever, honestly! So, I hope you’ll all enjoy the novel, SIMPLY THE BEST, and please DO let me, and the folks at LSB know what you think of the book, all right? Because of a personal loss with a staff member, the book is going to be delayed a week, but it WILL be out on August 21st, so that's the date to check in!! (And buy the book, too, I hope?? )

For me, the next one is really the one that’s closer to my heart. Set in Victorian London, OUT OF HELL is the first of what I hope will be many books featuring Inspector Michael Devane. The first novella of the series is due early in September, and I hope you’ll take the time to meet the good Inspector, I think you’ll like him if you enjoy Historical romance fiction with a touch of mystery and eroticism.

The “must reads” now — If you like the 1800s England era, and vampires, or both, you really should read After Midnight from Teresa Medeiros. I’ve just finished it, and I loved it! I don’t even like vampires much, but that aspect was the framework for an engaging, passionate love story, not the focus of it, and Ms. Medeiros did a fabulous job with the story. It was rich in detail and read like poetry. I highly recommend it.

And, of course, I also recommend ANY book by my wonderful friend Lucy Monroe. As I’ve said to Lucy, the one thing that makes all her books so special is the way they make you feel when you put them down — happy inside, and that warm fuzzy stays with you long after the book is finished, so they’re all a joy to read. If you haven’t had the good fortune to read Lucy’s romances, it would really be worth your time to locate them and indulge in her brand of magic and romance. It will make you feel great inside, believe me!!!

Quick question for the LXG fans out there

All right, as you may know if you’ve visited my “Fantasy Pages” before today, I am in the process of writing a novella based on one of my very favourite movies, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. I know I’m not the only fan of this movie, so I have a question for any of you folks who like the film, or have seen it and wouldn’t mind supplying some input, okay?

Question is thus: I’m bringing Dorian Gray back to the land of the living in this novella, and given his history, and the way the League was presented, do you think he’d be a better man this time around, or totally without conscience? I’d love to hear everyone’s thoughts on this character, as he was played by Stuart Townsend in the movie, so… Comments, suggestions, or observations anyone???

Thanks!
